But......why only 88% in the middle of your run?
how fast are you runnin, what % is wash, do you use packing(copper?), Is your coil a double helix?

Can i make a few comments. If you want to stay with LM get rid of the reflux valve. Put a T above your pduct vave and connect it back to the column with a slight uphill. This will get rid of that huge dam of condensate which desenitizes your cuts and contaminates your product with heads. Stability seems to be a problem with all those strings to the roof, a built in problem with big off set heads.
Can I make a suggestion, move your condenser to the top of your column. install a gate valve on the side arm which feeds a liebig of 1" tube ( with a twisted baffle in it) with a 1 1/4 jacket 1 foot long, extend the 1" tube down and incorporate your parrots beak in it. Result will be a much more balanced rig, better contol, no dam of condensate and a parrots beak that is going to be right on the ball to help you pick your cuts in cool product.
Hope I can get me foot outa me mouf afta this. cheers
